Learnt From:

I learnt this method of preparing tomato dal from my husband.


Toor Dal --- ½ (rice cooker) cup
Water --- 1 & ½ (rice cooker) cup
Turmeric Powder --- a pinch
Green Chilies --- 5
Onions --- 1/4th of big one
Tomatoes --- 2 Large

For Seasoning:

Garlic --- 1 or 1&1/2
Urad dal --- ½ spoon
Mustard seeds --- ½ spoon
Cumin seeds --- 1/4th spoon
Red chilly --- ½
Curry leaves --- 4-6 no.
Oil --- 2 spoons


Clean half a cup of toor dal in a pressure cooker directly.
Add one and half cup of water into the dal.
Add a pinch of turmeric powder.
Chop 4-5 green chilies and add them to the cooker.
Chop 1/4th of big onion and add them to the cooker.
Chop 2 large or 3 medium tomatoes and them to the cooker.
Cover the pressure cooker with whistle.
Keep it for 8 whistles.
Wait for 10-20 minutes to leave the pressure from the cooker.
Open the lid and mix the stuff with a ladle.
Add salt as per the taste.
Chop 1 and ½ garlic.
Heat 2 spoons of oil in a pan.
Fry chopped garlic, urad dal, mustard seeds, cumin seeds, half red chilly and curry leaves.

Add the seasoning or the fried one to the dal and mix it uniformly.
Transfer the tomato dal to a serving bowl.
